Annotate 3D Models in Paperspace

We create our arrangement drawings by using xrefs of our steelwork and pipework models, these are very large and contain Prosteel objects. At this stage we will not be using Plant 3D orthographic views.


These arrangement drawings shall be dimensioned and annotated in paperspace. CadWorx could do this by retrieving the line number, or tag information from the xref model and placing it in Paperspace. Can Plant 3D annotate the xrefs of the pipe models similar to the way it annotates the orthographic views.

This is not possible at the moment. We are currently looking for a possibility to do this through programming. I will keep you posted.
